During his opening monologue on Saturday (May 8), the 49-year-old Tesla CEO made a reference to the cryptocurrency that’s taking the business world by storm.
Find out what Elon Musk said about Dogecoin!
If you didn’t know, Dogecoin was launched as a joke back in 2013 and the value of Doge has risen significantly after Elon endorsed it back in December 2020. It had a huge surge ahead of his SNL debut.
In his monologue, Elon was joined on stage by his famous mom Maye Musk where they talked about his childhood.
Towards the end of the monologue, Maye asked about her Mother’s Day gift.
“I’m excited for my Mother’s Day gift. I just hope it’s not Dogecoin,” Maye said.
“It is,” Elon jokingly said back.
